Buloke maintained its popularity in 2012, with a large increase in the popularity of Hindmarsh and a large decrease in the popularity of Baudin and Vlamingh... Hindmarsh is a very good variety and is the best alternative to malting varieties in environments where the yield potential is below 2.5 t/ha and/or there is a low expectation of delivering malt grade barley... Overall, the big winner was Hindmarsh, increasing in acreage by nearly 120,000 ha in 2012 and pipping both Gairdner and Vlamingh in total acreage...

While pleased with a yield of seven tonnes per hectare from his Gairdner barley, Tasmanian grower Rob Terry will change to Westminster in 2014 for its higher yield potential... Westminster is set to replace Gairdner as the dominant barley variety grown in Tasmania with the state's two major breweries, Cascade Brewery and Boag's Brewery, endorsing it for malting last year... Gairdner was released in 1998 and has long been the only malting variety these breweries would accept, although Barley Australia has given malting status to other varieties suited to Tasmania...

Plans to bring barley breeding into a nationally-coordinated program have moved a step closer with the different breeding program leaders agreeing on the need for structural change to keep Australian programs internationally competitive... A national program would raise the level of barley breeding, not just to provide growers with improved varieties, but also ensure breeding programs are in step with market forces... The steering committee, at a meeting in Adelaide on 21 October, also agreed that Barley Australia should be recognised as the peak industry body and provide market direction to the breeding programs...

Bass is a short strawed, semi-dwarf variety that reaches awn peep a few days earlier than Baudin, Buloke and Vlamingh... Long term MET results suggest that the grain yield of Commander is similar to Buloke in all Agzones...

There is market demand for the production of Buloke in all Port Zones, although the demand is seasonally dependent in Geraldton and eastern parts of the Kwinana Port Zone (Table 3)... There is market demand for the production of Vlamingh in the Kwinana (seasonal in eastern areas), Albany and Esperance Port Zones, but no market demand in the Geraldton Port Zone (Table 3)... If accredited, Grange will offer growers improvements in agronomic performance (grain yield, grain quality and disease resistance) over the established malting varieties Baudin, Buloke and Gairdner...

Thank you to National Variety Trials (NVT), the NVT trial co-operators and breeding organisations for their cooperation in providing data... There is still some re-focusing required to maximise the opportunities for growers and maximise the opportunities for the trade... Varietal resistance to BYD and CYD does not reduce the need to spray for aphids to prevent yield loss from feeding damage once they reach threshold levels in the crop (50% of tillers with 15 or more aphids)...
